Beautifully decorated B&B very close to town and train station! Couple of things to know: a "king bed" here is really a double; there is no lift although the helpful staff is more than willing to assist with hauling your bags up the stairs; and the breakfast menu card is a little confusing-- make sure you're clear on how to...

Lovely B & B, tastefully decorated to a very high standard. Breakfast is really lovely and the staff can't do enough to make your stay enjoyable.
